A  notification was issued by Punjab Transport Authority, which said that as the above-mentioned companies are illicitly using private cars for services the provincial government is facing huge financial damages, further adding that cars are being used as a taxi without the mandatory car-fitness certificate and route permit.

However, it is still unclear if this ban is valid for Lahore only, or that other cities in Punjab are also part of this order.

The notification in this regard has been already sent to Lahore’s chief Traffic Officer so that these services are not allowed on Lahore’s roads. The notification says that since private cars are being used for transportation they must not be used for commercial purposes.

They Punjab government also mentioned that as security authorizations of drivers are not also taken from authorities, it poses a security threat to the public, henceforward orders have been issued for taking strict action against them.
